LOCAL writer and historian Mike Wilson has turned his words on paper into practical help for the town’s homeless.

Already a supporter of the new Kingfisher Trust Tea Rooms, set up in West Street by the Bridlington homeless charity to help those without a home get their lives back on track through using their skills and learning new ones, Mike, of Burstall Hill has now bought them a much needed storage shed.

He has managed to pay for the £150 bill out of sales of his written work produced by his Free Spirit Writers operation.

“It is what I like to be able to do, use any money we make to help others and the Kingfisher Trust is something I believe in as a very worthwhile cause,” he said.

He has previously helped the tea rooms by printing menus and leaflets for them and providing other items which can be used by homeless people.

Jean Dowdney, vice-chair of the Trust, said they were extremely grateful for his help and the shed will give the tea rooms much needed extra storage space.
